Carl sits down with Jacquelyn Simone, policy director at Coalition for the Homeless, to discuss the predicted perfect storm for New York’s current housing crisis. From trespassing and loitering laws to encampment sweeps, NYC has a long history of criminalizing homelessness. Jacquelyn shares how this has evolved in recent years and the impact it has on real peoples’ lives. She leaves us with how Mayor Adams’ administration can begin to repair this harm and how we can all join the fight to interrupt this crisis.
